Island Hiking Tours


Some of the most amazing sites, historic remnants and preserved natural wild-lands are accessible by foot on several of the Apostle Islands.  On these tours we boat directly to the island of interest for the designated hike and then allow plenty of time to explore the trail.  Sometimes, hiking an island can be good option island archipelago experience when it is too windy for kayaking in the sea caves.  Or consider adding time to one of our standard tour to include a hike.  All tours require a 4 person minimum so sometimes it is hard to match people together for hiking tours because of the variety of options, so we have weekly group hikes offered several times throughout the year.

Sand Island- Lighthouse, Caves, Historic Remnants and Beaches

4-mile out and back trail, spend the day exploring the island!  $120 per person

Description: Easy. This hike begins at the campground dock and then starts a boardwalk trail, which eventually turns to dirt but it is all an easy stroll hike to the light-house grounds. In a few places along the trail there are remnants of a distant past when the island was a booming small farm and fishing community in the early part of the 1900’s. Bonus from the hiking trail there is an excellent view point of the sea caves on Sand Island.  There are also 2 beautiful beaches to enjoy! Typical morning departure is 10am which drops you off on Sand ~10:45am.  We will plan a pick up time around 4 or 5pm to give you a return boat ride to Madeline or Bayfield.
